It does not matter what time of day you apply the Picato but it is best used at the same time each day.
Use as much as you need to cover the treatment area thinly.
I just finished Picato treatment On my entire face. I'm on day 18 after the start. I think its best to start about 10am so you can get chores done first. I wrote a daily journal on canceronmpass com. My name on the site is one great life no spaces in between. And DONT touch your face for 6 hours after applying. I did and got an infection.
Be brave and don't go in the sun while using this, and don't wash the scabs off.
Day 1 not so bad, day 2 feels like 2nd degree burn, day 3 feels like 3rd degree burn, day 4 through 8 itch like crazy, day 9 through 14 get 50% better each day.
My skin looks great now, but it is still pink. I don't reccomend using it at the beginning of summer, as my skin is very sensitive to the sun now.
